The pandemic has set the table for an unusual Thanksgiving meal this year, with as many unique situations as there are people. 

Some folks used to being invited to the feast are now cooking for themselves for the first time. Those isolating alone or with one other person are in the position of creating a smaller spread, agonizing over whether to make mashed potatoes or mac-n-cheese. And the increase in smaller Thanksgivings has created a tiny turkey shortage (no, really). 

Whether you’ve never made a turkey in your life or are a connoisseur in the kitchen looking to spice up your sides this year, we want to hear from you at 866-893-5722. We’ve got two incredible chefs to answer your questions, soothe your anxieties and advise you towards culinary greatness.
